NOT A DRILL: Ocasio-Cortez Says ‘Growing Cauliflower’ a ‘Colonial Approach’ to Gardening

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.20.19

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez -yet again- used her Bronx community garden to weigh-in on social justice this week; saying growing specific vegetables like cauliflower is a “colonial approach to environmentalism.

“What I love too is growing plants that are culturally familiar to the community. It’s so important,” said Cortez.

“So that’s really how you do it right. That is such a core component of the Green New Deal is having all of these projects make sense in a cultural context, and it’s an area that we get the most pushback on because people say, ‘Why do you need to do that? That’s too hard,’” she added.

“But when you really think about it — when someone says that it’s ‘too hard’ to do a green space that grows Yucca instead of, I don’t know, cauliflower or something — what you’re doing is that you’re taking a colonial approach to environmentalism, and that is why a lot of communities of color get resistant to certain environmentalist movements because they come with the colonial lens on them,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

Ocasio-Cortez made similar comments just weeks ago when she claimed “food coming from dirt” was “magic.”

“Look! Oh my god, look at this! I am shook. Honestly, gardening, food that comes out of dirt, it’s like magic. The tomatoes died though… This is so exciting!” said Ocasio-Cortez in her video.

The recently sworn-in representative found herself in hot water last month after the prolific Twitter-user failed to mention the devastating series of bombings that rocked Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday.

NOT A DRILL: AOC Discovers Her Own ‘Terrifying’ Garbage Disposal, Says ‘I Don’t Know What It’s For’

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.07.19

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continued to raise eyebrows across the country this week; posting a bizarre video where she discovers her apartment’s “terrifying” garbage disposal.

“I am told this is a garbage disposal. I’ve never seen a garbage disposal, I’ve never had one in any place I’ve ever lived. It is terrifying, I don’t know what to use it for, or what its purpose is. Like, food scraps? Is this environmentally sound? I don’t know,” said Ocasio-Cortez.

The Congresswoman’s comments come days after she was amazed by her own community garden; saying that “food comes from the dirt” like “magic.”

NOT A DRILL: AOC Supports Strike Against Uber and Lyft… To ‘Help the Drivers Feed Their Families’

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.08.19

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called for a “day of action” against Uber and Lyft Wednesday; strangely saying the strike can “help all the drivers you’ve met get paid more to feed their families.”

“Labor, labor – read all about it! Your Direct Action for today: Don’t take an Uber or Lyft just for the day. (Just today! Cabs are fine! You can do it!) It’s a small but big way you can help all the drivers you’ve met get paid more to feed their families + support themselves,” posted Ocasio-Cortez on social media.

Users on social media were quick to point out the blaring contradiction, saying “What about the Uber and Lyft drivers who are out there working today because they need to put food on the table?”
